I'm not positive about this... figured I'd ask you guys what you think. Looks kinda strong/kinda weak to me.
pretty plainly visible, I think that's a strong D but I'm no expert

I can see it and the TPGS didn’t label it weak so I am in the strong camp.
It’s visible so I’ll say strong. PCGS says that on the weak version, the coin has to be viewed at an angle to detect the Mint mark.
Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.
I think that it’s somewhere in between, and I would not pay strong D money for it.
On the Indian $2.5 and $5, the mintmark is the only design element that is raised above the field and there is no raised rim on these coins so the mintmark is unprotected and will wear off quite quickly.
Probably the strong D and as @PerryHall indicated, has experienced significant wear. Cheers, RickO
Looks like a weak, strong D.
Perhaps worn down.
In their respective pop reports, PCGS lists 1911-D “Strong D” and “Weak D”, while NGC lists “1911-D” and “1911-D Weak D”. Based on that, my thought is that since the coin in this thread wasn’t designated “Weak D”, it shouldn’t be/hopefully isn’t.

Well, if I'm going to pay strong D money, I want a strong D. I don't think that D is strong enough for me.. Nice coin though!
